[Image]The Pride events of today began to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan which was considered to be the tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. In June, LGBTQIA+ Pride Month events are held across the country to commemorate the contributions, activism, and courage of LGBTQIA+ people throughout history and up to the present day. 

As Charlotte AFP continues to strengthen experiences of connectedness and affirm the nuanced experiences and identities that are a part of philanthropy, we are committed to elevating the perspectives and experiences of all individuals. Thus, in celebration and observance of Pride Month, we want to highlight the following resources. We encourage you to use these resources as a touchpoint for engagement and connection.

The Giving USA Annual Report on Philanthropy is a 350+ page report with chapters that provide in-depth analysis of findings on total charitable giving, giving by sources, and giving to major recipient categories. Join us on July 14th to learn of the report's big take-aways, and, more importantly look ahead to see how trends in American giving may shape your organization's fundraising strategy.  You will also hear from experts in the field in an engaging panel discussion. Register here.

Networking Lunch: What's your fundraising style? 
Do you consider yourself a donor-centric fundraiser, community-centric fundraiser, or somewhere between the two? Join AFP Charlotte for a networking lunch with fundraisers of all styles. We'll mix and mingle, giving you the opportunity to talk to and learn from fundraisers with different approaches from your own. Lunch will be provided.
